Afghans protest US-led hit on civilians

Wed Mar 2, 2011

People protest against the killing of civilians in Afghanistan.

Hundreds of Afghan angry protesters have rallied against US-led military operations in Afghanistan following the death of nine children in northeast of the country.


The protesters held the demonstrations on Wednesday, a day after a US-led air strike claimed the lives of nine children in Darah-Ye Pech district in Kunar province.

The NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said late Tuesday it was probing the civilian casualties after its troops carried out the aerial attack.

The incident is the latest report of civilian deaths by the US-led forces in Afghanistan.

The Kabul government says the US-led military alliance is violating security agreements by killing Afghan security guards and civilians.

Thousands of Afghan people have been killed so far as a result of military operations by foreign troops since the 2001 US-led invasion.

Afghan officials, including President Hamid Karzai, have repeatedly condemned repeated attacks by US-led foreign forces on civilians and called for halt to such operations.

US-led forces kill nine Afghan kids

Wed Mar 2, 2011


A US-led air strike has claimed the lives of nine children, aged between seven and nine, in northeast Afghanistan, a police chief says.


The NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said late Tuesday it was probing the civilian casualties after its troops carried out an aerial operation in Darah-Ye Pech district in Kunar province.

The deadly incident is the latest report of civilian deaths by the US-led forces in Kunar, AFP reported.

Khalilullah Ziayee, the police chief for the restive province, said the US-led airstrike “hit children who had climbed mountains to collect firewood. Nine children have been killed."

"The children were aged between seven and nine," he added.

Last week, the Afghan government confirmed that the US-led military alliance had killed scores of civilians during recent operations in the northeastern part of the country.

The Afghan government said its probe had found the US-led foreign forces killed 65 civilians, many of them children in Kunar province. The report was also presented at the meeting of National Security Council on Sunday.

"Those killed during the operations including 10 women, 15 men and 40 children," the report said.

Sources say civilians were killed in the volatile region on February 17.

Thousands of Afghan people have so far lost their lives as a result of military operations by the foreign troops since the 2001 U-S-led invasion of Afghanistan.

Afghan officials, including President Hamid Karzai, have repeatedly condemned and called for an end to foreign troops' attacks on Afghan civilians.

Nine Afghan Boys Collecting Firewood Killed by NATO Helicopters

By ALISSA J. RUBIN and SANGAR RAHIMI

KABUL, Afghanistan — Nine boys collecting firewood to heat their homes in the eastern Afghanistan mountains were killed by NATO helicopter gunners who mistook them for insurgents, according to a statement on Wednesday by NATO, which apologized for the mistake.

The boys, who were 9 to 15 years old, were attacked on Tuesday in what amounted to one of the war’s worst cases of mistaken killings by foreign-led forces. The victims included two sets of brothers. A 10th boy survived.

The NATO statement, which included an unusual personal apology by the commander of the NATO forces in Afghanistan, Gen. David H. Petraeus, said the boys had been misidentified as the attackers of a NATO base earlier in the day. News of the attack enraged Afghans and led to an anti-American demonstration on Wednesday in the village of Nanglam, where the boys were from. The only survivor, Hemad, 11, said his mother had told him to go out with other boys to collect firewood because “the weather is very cold now.”

“We were almost done collecting the wood when suddenly we saw the helicopters come,” said Hemad, who, like many Afghans, has only one name. “There were two of them. The helicopters hovered over us, scanned us and we saw a green flash from the helicopters. Then they flew back high up, and in a second round they hovered over us and started shooting. They fired a rocket which landed on a tree. The tree branches fell over me and shrapnel hit my right hand and my side.”

The tree, Hemad said, saved his life by covering him so that he could not be seen by the helicopters, which, he said, “shot the boys one after another.”

General Petraeus pledged to investigate the attack and to take disciplinary action if appropriate.

“We are deeply sorry for this tragedy and apologize to the members of the Afghan government, the people of Afghanistan and, most importantly, the surviving family members of those killed by our actions,” he said. “These deaths should have never happened.”

It was the third instance in two weeks in which the Afghan government has accused NATO of killing civilians. NATO strongly disputes one of those reports, but another — the killing of an Afghan Army soldier and his family in Nangarhar Province on Feb. 20 — was also described as an accident.

The attack on the boys occurred high in the mountains outside Nanglam in the Pech Valley of Kunar Province. American troops are preparing to close their bases in the valley in the next several weeks, in part because their presence has vexed the villagers, who would prefer to be left alone. The area is poor, and the only major road was built to service Forward Operating Base Blessing, according to local residents.

A rocket attack on the base on Tuesday led to a helicopter search for the insurgents responsible, the NATO statement said. The base is surrounded by mountains and is the frequent target of Taliban fighters, who shoot down on it from the rocky heights.

The helicopters “returned fire at the assessed point of origin with indirect and aerial fire,” the NATO statement said. “Regrettably there appears to have been an error in the handoff between identifying the location of the insurgents and the attack helicopters that carried out subsequent operations.”

Villagers — who heard the gunfire in the mountains and worried when the children did not return home — went to look for them. The boys had been out since the morning, local people said.

“As soon as we heard about the attack on the village’s children, all the village men rushed to the mountains to find out what really happened,” said Ashabuddin, a shopkeeper from Manogai, a nearby village, whose nephew Khalid was among those killed.

“Finally we found the dead bodies. Some of the dead bodies were really badly chopped up by the rockets,” he said. “The head of a child was missing. Others were missing limbs.”

“We tried to find the body pieces and put them together. As it was getting late, we brought down the bodies in a rope bed. We buried them in the village’s cemetery,” Ashabuddin added. “The children were all from poor families; otherwise no one would send their sons up to the mountains despite the known threats from both insurgents and Americans.”

Khalid, 14, was the only male in the family, Ashabuddin said. “He was studying in sixth grade of the orphanage school and working because his father died four years ago due to a long-term sickness. His father was a day laborer. He has 13 sisters and two mothers. He was the sole breadwinner of the family. I don’t know what would happen to his family to his sisters and mothers. They are all female and poor.”

President Hamid Karzai, who was in London for an official visit, condemned the attack “in the strongest terms possible.”

Calling it “ruthless,” he questioned whether the Western goals of combating terrorism and securing Afghanistan could be achieved if civilians continued to die.

More than 200 people gathered in Nanglam on Wednesday to protest the boys’ deaths, witnesses said. Waving white flags, they shouted “Death, death to America!” and “Death to Obama and his colleagues and associates!”
